He said he loved refereeing but added following the incident: 'This is the first time that anything like this has happened to me while I've been refereeing.'I am a former player trying to put a bit back into football and I love doing it - but it has got a lot worse.'Players think you have 25 Sky TV cameras on your head, but you are by yourself out there, which means that the losing team always blame you.'There has been a lot of effort to bring younger referees through: they do it for about a year and then pack in because of the abuse they get.'It is the same with the older refs - you just don't need it.'Prew's barrister Andrew Semple said his client had suffered a personal tragedy around the time.
Prew, of Scarborough, North Yorkshire pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm at an earlier hearing.
The footage shows Krasniqi appearing to be handed a weapon by a friend, before he lashed out at another man nearby.
After briefly walking away from the scene, he is seen turning around and firing the weapon, with his victim briefly falling to the floor.
The crowd of people, including Krasniqi, is seen scattering as the victim gets up and limps away.
Krasniqi, of Tottenham, north London, was found guilty of wounding with intent and possessing a firearm at Wood Green Crown Court.
A soccer thug who ran onto the pitch and shoulder-barged a referee to the ground at an English non-league cup final putting him in hospital has been hailed for 18 months.
Scott Prew, 23, ran on to the field of play after veteran referee Bill Pashby had sent three players off from his team in the Scarborough District League cup final.
York Crown Court heard Eastway Sports fan Prew had encroached on the field while his side were trailing 2-1 against Goal Sports at Pickering Town FC's Mill Lane ground on March 29.
The game was subsequently abandoned in the 82nd minute when Prew launched himself at Mr Pashby which left him in a heap on the ground - injuring his shoulder.
Prosecutor Austin Newman said throughout the 'keenly-contested' match between the local rivals, Mr Pashby had to deal with many 'on-field disputes'.
He said at the time he would think about his future in refereeing.
However, the veteran ref has continued and on Saturday oversaw Hunmanby's 5-3 win over Goal Sports in this year's league cup.
Three Eastway players were yellow-carded in the first half for dirty tackles and dissent.
